Adbusters and the Art of Modern Activisim

On Thursday, May 24 at 7pm local artist and activist Megan Bastey will present an ArtTalk on Adbusters and the Art of Modern Activism.

Bastey will examine the the explosive viral phenomenon of Occupy Wall Street, which was originally sparked by the Canadian group Adbusters.  Bastey’s talk will touch on the history of art and politics, focusing primarily on Adbusters’ technique of mirroring opposing photographs and linking media images with words critical of those images. The ArtTalk will be followed by a discussion on the impact of Adbusters’ style of using humor, art, and political essay to inspire activism.
